    the FDA on tue that its investigation will remain focused on melmine and melamine-related compounds, but-as a proactive measure- the agency will now be testing a wider range of protein ingredients, including wheat gluten, corn gluten, corn meal, soy protein, rice bran and rice protein. other highlights from the FDA news conference: (this will get you sick)

    Testing will also be carried out on finished food products that contain the six protein ingredients:
    the FDAmat add more ingredients into its screening policy in the future:
    (THIS IS GROSS WONT BE EATTING PORK) Hog farms in six states have received salvaged pet food that may have been contaminated with melamine: authorities are investigating whether any of the hogs from the now-quarantined farms were slaughtered for HUMAN food (we heard yes): the FDA is actively working with the cinese authorities who investigat the two companies known to be the source of the contaminated ingredients.
